Experimental Robotic Prosthesis for Transfemoral Amputees
“Adaptive Recalibration of Prosthetic Leg Neural Control System”
The purpose of this study is for transfemoral amputees to walk with an experimental robotic prosthesis. Electric signals will be measured from their muscles and used to help control an artificial leg. The investigators will record from sensors placed on a prosthesis and electric signals measured from muscles in the participants leg to see if the investigators can develop better computer programs to help predict subject actions and prostheses function.
Device - Powered knee and ankle prosthesis
A powered knee and ankle prosthesis developed by Vanderbilt University.
